Grade 6


Module 9

Design a basic frame structure

Design a frame structure using a sheet of cardboard

What is the problem?

Due to the fact that every learner has to compile a portfolio of his/her best work in a grade during the year, it can cause a great mess if your pages of the 10 different learning areas get mixed up when you want to replace pages. Therefore it is important that you keep the three pages of each learning area together by using a paper clip in your portfolio so that you will not waste unnecessary time when you want to replace pages.

What is the need?

You will need a small container in which you can keep your paper clips and have extra available when you need to replace pages. Since nothing suitable is available in the shops at present, you will have to design and construct your own container.

What is the instruction?

Design and make a small container for paper clips that you can keep on your desk. Use felt-tipped pens to decorate the lid with a simple geometric pattern and see to it that the lid fits tightly.

What are the limitations?

You may only use one piece of A4 cardboard, a wooden strip of 0,5 m long, and 1 cm by 1 cm, paper glue and felt-tipped pens with which to decorate it.

Summary of the need/design brief

Assignment 1:

[lo 1.4]


I am going to design and make a neat and attractive container that can hold_____________

It can be made of _________________________________ and ______________________

for use in the ___________________________________ The lid will be decorated with a

_______________________________ pattern with _______________________________ .

Research and investigation:

Assignment 2:

Bring to class as many small containers as possible in which paper clips could be kept and draw at least three examples with labels. take care that their shapes, sizes and the material used for each container differ as much as possible.

[lo 1.2]


Assignment 3:

Design and draw the frame for the container on the provided grid paper.

[lo 1.5]

Design and draw the frame for the container on the provided grid paper. You are going to use the small wooden bar. The inner dimensions of the small container must not be more than 10 cm by 10 cm and not smaller than 5 cm by 5 cm because it must be able to contain at least 10 paper clips quite easily. Colour the small strips that are of the same length, in one colour. Also indicate the inner and outer dimensions of your design. Draw a circle around your final choice.

  • Remember: Assume that one square is 1 cm by 1 cm, so it is not necessary to use a ruler. Keep in mind that the longer sides of the frame include the shorter sides.

Assignment 4:

Design and draw simple geometric shapes with which you would like to decorate the lid. you may choose and use one basic shape only. draw it the same size, as you would have it on the lid.

[lo 1.6]


Learning Outcomes(LOs)

LO 1


The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technologies

Assessment Standards(ASs)

We know this when the learner:

1.2 finds out about existing products relevant to a problem, need or opportunity, and identifies and compares their design aspects (e.g. who it is for, what it is for, what it looks like, what it is made of, how well it works, whether it will affect the environment);

1.4 writes or communicates a design brief for the development of a product related to a given problem, need or opportunity that clarifies the technological purposes of the solution;

1.5 suggests and records at least two alternative solutions to the problem, need or opportunity that link clearly to the design brief and to given specifications and constraints (e.g. people, purpose, safety, environmental impact, appearance);

1.6 chooses one of these solutions, giving valid reasons for the choice, and further develops the choice with graphics and/or modelling.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help
But this is not salma it's Faiza live in lousvile Ky I garbage this so I am going collage with JCTC that the of the collage thank you my friends

Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
